From our Customers

 Decided to go with the pattern from the original lacing, and it turned out pretty well I think, for a first timer. Here they are ready for a first coat of varnish. I’m looking forward to seeing the final product, which should look pretty similar to the original shoes. Thanks for your support, and the great lacing material. Very pleased with this choice after considering a couple of other options.   ScotMarch 2021

HAPPY FEET!   -   Thanks Matt R

 

At 68 years, I am finally finishing a second pair of Large Ojibwa Snowshoes. 35+ years ago bought from another builder in Minneapolis-  Larson and Larson outdoor design.  I had a medium set I built 40 plus years ago and snowshoed Yellowstone from the south gate to Old Faithful.   Here is a picture of the two different sets.

I ordered green mountain bear paws.  Jim at Beaver Creek recommended you.  He said you were top notch.  I already have Ojibwa, made with Jim.  No classes are being held.  I'm excited to have an option for various trails or none, condition of snow, terrain.  

 The snowshoes were in perfect condition and look absolutely amazing.  I'll be sure to tell whoever asks that they are hand-made by elves.   Thank you so much, and thank those elves for helping.

I have received my package safe and sound. They are gorgeous they look like rawhide with the varnish. Thanks for such an amazing product. Now I need more snow I guess I could venture 50 miles north into the Adirondack mountains.

Mr. Wilcox,
I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for your fantastic service and beautiful product. I am glad to finally be in your shoes, look forward to putting them through their paces. I don’t see many people, but those I do see will hear about you.
Keep up the good work.
Thanks much,

I hope all is well. I picked up our second pair of Ojibwas at the Post Office today and they arrived in great shape. I also noticed no shipping charge and so I wanted to thank you right away for your great customer care and your generosity and patience. You did not have to cover shipping costs and yet you did. I will happily purchase from you folks again and encourage others to do the same. Thank you again so very much!
Take good care and all the best,
Brad

Country Ways team:

I thought I’d share some photos of my finished Huron snowshoe kit.  I’m sure you see hundreds of these photos, so they may not be anything new for you.  But, for the first time tackling a snowshoe project, I believe they came out functional and rather nice.  And if they don’t work out,.. well, they will look nice on the wall.  After I give them a month or so of curing time, I’ll get to try them out in Rocky Mountain National Park in January.

Best Regards,

Steve

PS – I made the little silhouette black appliques using a digital cutting machine and black vinyl adhesive-backed material.
